The film office once again points out that all incoming applications must be prepared according to RSA21 and also be approved and arranged according to these guidelines. RSA95 no longer applies and applications should no longer be submitted on this basis.
The RSA 21 rule plans (in German only):
Due to the acute risk of forest fires, all filming requests are checked by the Berlin Forests on a case-by-case basis and, if necessary, given a negative decision. All filming inquiries should be directed to the responsible district forester's office/forestry office.
Due to personnel capacities in the Postdam-Mittelmark district, an application lead time of at least 4 weeks must still be expected.
Due to current events, the film office asks you to comply with the three-week application lead time. In order to ensure fast processing, the applications must be complete and the VZP must be submitted carefully. When creating control plans, the validity and requirements of RSA21 must be observed.
In the district of Pankow, the application deadline is always 4 weeks before the start of the measure. Short-term temporary changes to the application deadlines cannot be ruled out.
In the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg district, filming in public green spaces (parks) is still not permitted. The use of street green (e.g. central reservation) can be approved with a few exceptions.
Due to personnel capacities, the Mitte district office asks you to plan an application lead time of 3 weeks from now on. This applies both to applications for special use and to applications for filming in green spaces.
With immediate effect, Grün Berlin GmbH is once again the central point of contact for filming permits in the Park am Gleisdreieck. Permissions will be granted again depending on the specific filming project.
FYI: The Te-Damm property (block of flats) on Burgemeisterstraße / Ordensmeisterstraße is unfortunately no longer available for filming until further notice. The responsible district office refers, among other things, to the Misappropriation Act, which is why the management of the property management decided to stop renting to production companies for the time being. We will keep you up to date on the subject.
